I don’t know how long this will last but there are great deals on Etihad Airways flights. You could fly from New York to Hong Kong for ~$373. Or Chicago to Abu Dhabi for ~$211.
There are also great deals flying from the west coast. And from Dallas to Mumbai.
I’ll explain how to book these fares!
Where You Can Fly & How to Book
Folks on Flyertalk have reported success finding very low fares on Etihad. One example was New York City (JFK) to Johannesburg (JNB) round-trip for ~$276 in March 2015.
These deals from New York to Johannesburg are also available in other months. You can use Google Flights to see a calendar with prices.
Here’s my post for how to search airfare using Google Flights.
Remember when you book on Orbitz you have 24 hours to cancel for free. So you can find a flight you like, book it, then continue searching for a better flight.
Note: Do NOT expect to earn miles in US-based programs like American Airlines.
Book Quickly, but…
You should book this quickly. Low fares don’t last long.
But, do NOT book non-refundable hotel or other travel plans until you receive a confirmation WITH an e-ticket number. And remember: DO NOT call the airline!
Which Card to Use?
There’s nothing better than finding a low fare and getting bonus points for the ticket!
There are great deals on Etihad flights right now. I don’t how long this will last!
